4.0 out of 5 stars A timeless niche book, 12 Feb 2014

There's not much out there for the underrated process of bid management; this is a good synopsis of the activities needed to keep ahead of the game!

They do what they set out to do... what more is there to say - except don't bother with the plastic alternatives!

A great product that does what it says... if you have a Dremel this replaces similar much more expensive stand-alone products

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun read, 12 Feb 2014

I wouldn't have read it if it weren't for the fact the Mr Alan Bennett wrote it - so I was intrigued... but all-in-all a fun read if you can put up with the absurdity of the subject.


The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared
Price: 2.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Hugely enjoyable.. to start with, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really got into this book, was amused and interested from the first page. It has remained, however, unread from the middle of the book onwards - the theme just became unfunny and repetitive.
Perhaps I'll pick it up again in a few weeks and persevere...


Salmon Fishing In The Yemen
Salmon Fishing In The Yemen

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but not extremely so, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book which is enticing and intriguing purely for its eccentric subject matter. The supporting themes of politics and love are always less than believable and leave one with the impression of a story which is trying hard to cover too many bases, veering from comic irony to tragic event with the turn of a page. The story is told through a series of letters and interviews, and as a consequence, one loses empathy with the key characters and the book becomes decreasingly engaging.

Having said that - I enjoyed the book as a quick summer read and was never tempted to give up with it. I would have enjoyed it more however if the central theme and characters had been more elaborately developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, helpful and interesting, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a superb accompaniment to travel in the Netherlands. Highlighting hidden gems and pinpointing perfect stop-offs, for eating, resting and sightseeing - this book is indispensable. I find that the juxtaposition of maps, regional and local descriptors, history and balanced judgements of everything that you will see turns a haphazard journey into a memorable and focussed visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the job, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent product - I bought two, and they are so well balanced that I can easily carry both of them, full to the brim, without a struggle, and without spilling a drop. They are very satisfying to use - easy-flowing and dispensing generous amounts of water.

This review is from: Room (Kindle Edition)
I didn't think I would enjoy this. But the character and the situation were so believable. Such a unique style of writing - and the approach to the subject was so clever.
